– overheard on a city bus through the fine art of sticking my ears where they weren’t invited –
“…and all I could think of was Narnia.”
“You know, the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe?”
“Yeah, but what about it?”
“Well the younger brother, he’s so nuts for Turkish Delight that he sells his entire family out for it, right? So when Mark was like, ‘Hey, someone gave me this box of Turkish Delight, do you want some?’ I was like, “Sweet!” all expecting it to be amazing. But it was just meh, you know? All I could think was that kid screwed over his brother and sisters for this stuff and it’s not even that great of a dessert.”
“Yeah, it’s just, like, flavored gelatin, right?”
“Something like that. Definitely not worth betraying anyone over, anyway.”
“I’d sell out my family for cheesecake.”
“Oh my god, yes. That’s a way better deal.”
“Of course…it would have to be a really good cheesecake.”
“Of course. And it would have to be a whole cheesecake. Like, I’m not double-crossing my family over just one slice of cheesecake, you know?”
“No, that’d just be silly. Always demand a full cheesecake.”
